It's true there isn't a lot to do here other than sit by the fountain or have your photo taken by the 'Love' statue but sometimes that's enough! At the end of a long day sightseeing it was a place to go to reflect, feel the cool spray from the fountain and watch the world go by. There are some... More

It was very relaxing by the water fountain and the landscaping. We didn't see any homeless people when we went. The statue was a bit smaller than I anticipated, but it was great seeing an iconic landmark. On the first day we were the the water was green, then after that it was normal color. We're not sure what the... More

We went here after a stop at the Rocky statue where we were basically harassed by some homeless dude to let him take our picture. He wouldn't let us say no, so we caved. Anyways, the Philly Phlash dropped us off here and we were surprised to find the same homeless dude here! (I guess they move around frequently). This... More

This park is nice to see during the day, especially to see the famous Love statue. I would not go there at night though.

This is a nice park to sit and relax. I got my lunch, and sat there to relax by the water fountain.Every tourist has to stop by and see it.

Just as a heads up, make sure you ask another tourist to take your photo while here. There are plenty of very engaging people who will offer to take your photo for you....then want a "donation" of a dollar or two for helping. It is relatively small, and there's nothing really else in the park.

The size of the LOVE sculpture was not as big as I envisioned it to be. A park good for pictures - Other than if you are lucky and have enough time, there's music and other art/culture performances at noon.
